I have to admit - the idea for the card was in my head when I drew the sketch! Not all of the details, but the idea of a larger flower wrapping around a sentiment panel. I have a number of these gorgeous stamp/stencil combinations and I am in love with them. It's such an easy and forgiving way to add color. You don't get multiple layers in and have a stamp mess things up (or user error) and leave patches unstamped. You can just keep brushing color until you are happy.
I needed one more Easter card so I went with a fresh pink color scheme. Then I decided the bold "alleluia" was just right but didn't fit entirely in the small rectangle in the sketch. So I let the rectangle go under the flower (because then you'd never know the sentiment didn't fit!)
When I decided to use a frame instead of a solid rectangle, I was a bit stuck on my vertical stripe. But I recently got this polka dot tulle ribbon and decided it would be a nice accent through the frame without being distracting.
I am so excited to see what you create with this sketch. The design team's and our player's creativity never ceases to amaze me. I am in awe of all of the unique and absolutely amazing creations. Have fun!

So beautiful Kim! A great sketch and I love the way you layered your elements to create the perfectly balanced card. I'm intrigued by your stencilled floral - it could easily pass as stamped. You really do have an amazing collection of Easter-themed stamps too!ReplyDelete
